About Carol Gibson

Southern Lancaster County has been my home for my entire life. I live 10 minutes away from Creekside Cottage and have been in the Real Estate business for many years. It has been my vision to create a place for guests to stay while visiting beautiful Southern Lancaster County. Creekside Cottage's manager, Carol Gibson, a retired teacher, was also born and raised in Southern Lancaster County.

Why Carol Gibson chose Pennsylvania

This property is adjacent to my country cabin and stables. The rich history and natural attractions in this area inspired me to build Creekside Cottage. Come learn, relax and explore this beautiful area!

What makes this cottage unique

I designed Creekside Cottage with comfort and efficiency in mind. The wood used for the kitchen island, kitchen table, walls in the den and Master bathroom all came from the trees on my property. If you stroll down behind the cottage, you will discover the most amazing natural rock wall. May you find peace, comfort and serenity during your visit!

Great house and location. Secluded & surrounded by nature.

The house is great with an open floor plan that makes it perfect for hanging out with friends. The surroundings couldn't have been better. We were isolated which was exactally looking for. great weekend of rest and relaxation. I highly recommend.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed 3 nights at this beautiful home and we hope to be back. It is a modern home with all the amenities tucked into a spectacular location next to a creek. Carol was professional and responsive, from reservation to check-out, and an absolute pleasure to interact with.

Another Wonderful Easter Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second Easter at the Creekside Cottage. We had an amazing time, just as we did last year. We are 6 adults and 3 children (boys aged 3, 6 and 7). The boys had a blast - running around the property, getting in the creek, having s'mores every night. The adults had a great time as well. We love all the cottage details and Carol and Don always go out of their way to make us feel welcome. We will definitely be back again next year, if not before!

Owner's Response: Dear Tiffany, Your review is greatly appreciated! It is a terrific place for little ones to explore the many wonders of nature! We're glad the weather cooperated for the fire pit to be utilized. We were pleased to have you return and hope to see you again in the future! Fondly, Don & Carol

Incredible stay again

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again to Don and Carol for their hospitality. This was our second stay in 6 months and we loved every minute. The house is immaculate and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We wished for snow during our stay, but this winter is mild for the Northeast. We have found our little piece of "heaven on earth" as we love nature, and just take in all the surroundings. We will be back again in early summer as I will celebrate my 65th birthday. We have found the perfect place to get away from the hustle/bustle of daily life. Thanks again for your hospitality and use of your home. See you soon.

Owner's Response: Dear Jack and Rhonda, If you were here right now, you'd be getting snowed in! HA! Quite the storm! We are looking forward to your third stay here and to helping you celebrate your 65th birthday! Thanks for your kind words! See you this summer! Carol & Don

Perfect rustic rural getaway close to Philadelphia and Baltimore

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Creekside Cottage! The place is gorgeous and clean, sitting in a quiet valley with nature all around. The house itself is great for entertaining and having a fun time: it has a big open den and kitchen, enclosed sunroom, long deck space, and a fire pit. My friends and I brought up our instruments and recorded an album (check us out on Bandcamp at https://wefightbears1.bandcamp.com/) and the quiet, isolated setting was very beautiful and inspiring. Creekside Cottage is a great choice for getting a group of friends or family together and enjoying PA's lovely countryside.

Owner's Response: Dear Christian, Thank you for taking the time to write your kind review. Creekside Cottage must have been the perfect place for your band to practice and record due to the layout of the first floor! I was just mentioning you and the guys to my friend last night. We both agreed that had we known you were playing your great music over there, we would have loved to stop by to listen. :-) Thank you for sending me your photo to post on our Facebook page! Please come back to revel in the beauty of nature at our secluded get-away again sometime! Happy New Year! Carol & Don

Beautiful home, Beautiful views, Great getaway with friendly helpful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed having some quiet relaxing time AND a family reunion Thanksgiving and birthday celebration . Family and friends from 19 to 90 truly raved about the design of this beautiful and beautifully thought out home on such a picturesque piece of property. How nice it was to be able to focus on food and fellowship and know that the cupboards were stocked with everything else we could need or want in dish and cookware, games, music , books and more. The house felt warm and cozy with just a few of us, and when the "whole gang" was there we did not feel crowded at all, being able to use porches, fire pit, living area with fireplace, and the nice big kitchen/dining area. We had puzzles, games, gingerbread house competitions, marshmallow roasts, quiet conversation, people walking to visit the horses, and even a few people doing college work on their computers - almost all happening simultaneously ! We thank GOD that we could have this time away at this beautiful place and we thank Carol and Don for providing the opportunity ! Steve & Heidi (and everyone else too)

Owner's Response: Dear Steve & Heidi, It sounds as though you all had a marvelous stay at the cottage! Knowing you are a touring musical family, not far from us, we hope you will come back at some point to perform for a group of our friends! That would be awesome! Thank you for leaving the adorable gingerbread house for future guests to enjoy! What fun you must have had with your family competition! We are pleased to hear you all were able to enjoy the indoor and outdoor offerings. Thank you so much and have a most exciting 2017! Fondly, Carol & Don
